Job Share training


We have 2 colleagues in our business that are finding it difficult to job share, as such I'm looking for training around this area. Typically covering handover techniques and effective communication.
If anybody know's of any training providers who cover this - or any relevent courses please let me know! Many thanks

  1. Helping people to work together
    Hi Claire
    Am I reading this right… the issue is not so much of skill but personality & working style?

    Some years ago I was called in to help 2 directors that liked each other but just could not worth together. The approach I took was to use a psychometric to profile them both, then help them to understand each others needs. It only tool a couple of hours and the result was almost instant.

    So rather than training, you could consider having them profiled with: FIRO-B, MBTI or use the SDI as a tool to show their differences – then in a simple small workshop explore how to celebrate difference and help them to understand the needs of the other.

    Good luck on this one

  2. even more basic
    I agree with Mike regarding the issue being more likely attitude and compatibility than skill and knowledge.

    Personally I’d go for an even more pragmatic approach…sit the two people down with you acting as coach/arbitrator and get them to come to some agreement about handover and communication. Keep the focus on the future rather than who is to blame for having reached this point.

    I do not believe that “training” is the answer here and I suspect that to take that route would fail, damaging the image of the HR/training function as well.


  3. talk before action
    Rus you are right – I was ASS-U-MEing that a discussion had already been done. On reflection perhaps it has not… ūüôā
